A musician living inok? clearer with "born in Austria"
Haifa, a pacifist, Quaker and conscientious objector, Joseph Abileah, who
was born in Austria in 1915, has created harmony not only on the viola, but
in building bridges between Arabs and Jews. A convert to Gandhi's nonviolent
philosophy, he has worked for protecting minority rights in Israel and on
cooperative projects bringing together Jews and Arabs. His call for a
tripartite confederation which would unite Arab Palestine, Israel and Jordan
in tackling common regional problems is now given serious consideration in
some quarters. An opponent of right-makes-might nationalism, Abileah, in
this quietly inspirational biography, presents an alternative vision of what
the Middle East might look like. Bing teaches at Earlham College in Indiana.
